We will miss you Donald Hernstrom!

Tuesday, March 23, 2021

J.P. Licks is devastated by the loss of a founding member of our family this week. Don started making ice cream with Vince in 1981 in our very first store at the corner of Moraine and Centre street. Don and Vince randomly met at Flannigan’s (JP supermarket) and began to share their love of food, and flavorings. For 40 years, Don created ice cream, toppings, basically anything Vince could dream up, he created. From Pad Thai to the best Vanilla. No challenge was too small or flavor too weak. He was Mr. Fix it and "Doctor Don," so [...] read more
